Climb up the featured face, which is almost a rounded aretejust to the right of Test Piece (5.8), and sharing the sametop anchor.

Start on the flake at the arete, and work your way up to anintersting sidepull move 20 or so feet off the ground.There are a couple of variations to this route, by keepingthe good hand to the right of the sidepull off, this routeis probably a 5.11a. By working without the reachy move tothe dish on the left about 15 feet off the ground, thisroute is probably a 5.11d.

Enjoy some interesting foot moves in the bottom, andinteresting balance moves up top.


2 bolts are conveniently set at the top of TestPiece (5.8), which is the corner crack route justto the left of Adhesion. You can also walk aroundto the top of Buck's Bar Dome by walking around tothe path on the left side of the rock.

Looks like there is now a separate two-bolt anchor at the top of the arete.

The first ascent of this climb was done by a group of climbers from UC Davis' Outdoor Adventure program in 1975 or so.
